JUNEAU -- Funds were approved Monday for the purchase of a new snow grooming machine at Eaglecrest Ski Area.
The Juneau Assembly approved the $285,000 machine, also known as a snow cat, to replace a 1995 model that became unreliable. The equipment is used to make ski runs smooth for skiers and snowboarders.
The ski area's board had approved the purchase last spring.
